Manchester United can not find replacement for Lukaku

Manchester United are unlikely to find the replacement of Romelu Lukaku, reporter James Cooper tells Sky Sports News.

“United are delighted to get rid of a problem, a problem which was causing them more harm than good.

“They were fairly relaxed that Romelu Lukaku was out of the country even though he was still an employee of United.

“But I think the relationship had run its course, on the other side of the coin he did score a lot of goals for the club and play some very good football.

“There’s speculation about additions, and by doing this quickly United have time to do that, but I’m led to believe it’s unlikely. At this stage, both Mario Mandzukic and Inaki Williams are unlikely, but I was told yesterday that United are working on a couple of things.

“Things can happen on deadline day, but I know Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with his additions, and some of the youngsters coming through like Mason Greenwood, who made a great impression on tour.”
